For any questions on the form, you can call (714) 796-6442.


Coyotes are a fact of life. They are drawn to cities for easy sources of food, including trash cans and outdoor pet food, which draws smaller animals that coyotes feed on.

But there are easy steps you can take to keep your home, family and pets safe. Read more on our coyote page.

If you have a swarm of bees in your yard, be careful and leave the bees alone. The best course of action is to call a local bee removal company. If the bees are on city property, please call (714) 765-6860 or dial 311 from any Anaheim telephone.
